5 Ways To Moisturize Your Lips This Fall

As much as I love the cool weather that rolls in with fall, this is when our skin starts to get dry and chapped – especially the lips. I have very sensitive skin, so I have always struggled with chapped lips this time of year. Whether it is from dehydration, allergies, or weather, nobody likes to have that annoying flaky skin or the pain that comes with it. As we enter this season, I wanted to share some natural remedies to keep your lips hydrated.

Here are five easy ways to keep your lips looking fresh and moisturized as the crisp air starts to hit – share your tips in the comments!

1) Cucumbers

Cut up a cucumber into a few small slices and hold the slices on your lips for 2o minutes. All of the water in the cucumber will help moisturize and replenish cracked lips!

2) Brown Sugar & Water

By mixing a little water into a bit of brown sugar, you can create a scrub that is perfect for exfoliating. Rub the mixture onto your lips until they begin to feel soft and repeat a few times a week! This scrub will help to get rid of any dead or dry skin.

3) Sea Salt & Water

Mix 2 tablespoons of sea salt into a warm glass of water and wait for it to dissolve. Dip a wash cloth into the salt water and hold it on your lips for 20 minutes. This will help to relieve the burn that goes along with chapped lips.

4) Coconut Oil

For an instant lip moisturizer, heat up some coconut oil in the microwave or on the stove. Apply the warm coconut oil to your lips with your finger or cotton swab. You can reapply this throughout the day to make sure your lips stay nice and hydrated! This also can be used as a lip gloss since the oil gives off a subtle shine.

5) Honey & Olive Oil

For an overnight lip treatment, mix a small amount of olive oil and honey together. Honey has been proven to have antibacterial and wound-healing properties, and the olive oil will help to moisturize.  Apply the mixture to your lips before you go to bed, and your lips will be soft and smooth in the morning!

  1. These are all really great tips! I especially love the honey and cucumber ones. My lips get super dry so I’ll definitely have to try these out!

  2. Honey, olive oil and sugar mixed together as a paste and rubbed onto the lips seriously help exfoliate away all of the dry, flaky skin away, without further drying out your lips. After the scrub is wiped off, your lips will feel amazing, and the soft, hydrated skin LASTS. It’s my go-to scrub every fall/winter.

  3. Hey there this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.

    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get
    guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  4. Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that,
    excellent blog!

  5. this is a great help specially now that i am suffering chapped lips, i will definitely try the cucumber and the sugar
